Connecticut Sun trades Asjha Jones to Minnesota

It could be a case of the rich getting richer as the star-studded Minnesota Lynx acquired the rights to former UConn star Asjha Jones from the Connecticut Sun in exchange for a second-round pick in next year's draft.

Jones has not played for the Sun since 2012 and showed little interest in returning to the team she played with for nine seasons.

“This was a trade that made sense for us,” Connecticut Sun Vice President and General Manager Chris Sienko said. “Asjha did not want to return to Connecticut so we found what we believe is the best available deal, especially as we continue to add and develop young talent.”

Allison Hightower and Kelsey Griffin are the only remaining players from the 2012 Connecticut Sun team, the last one to appear in the playoffs.
